Where are the cache file(s) located for Windows Remote Desktop Client for Mac OS X? Specifically the "allow bitmap caching" setting is saving the bitmap files to the cache somewhere.

I'm running RDC version 2.0.1 (090714)

This should be ~/Library/Caches/remote desktop connection. This folder on my system contains BMC files, same as the ones in the Terminal Services Client\Cache folder in Windows.

My ~/Library/Caches does not have remote desktop connection –  Wavy Crab Jun 12 '10 at 4:29
    
I am running RDC version 2.0.1 (090714) and I can confirm that I have a ~/Library/Caches/remote desktop connection folder with a .bmc cache file contained therein. –  ghoppe Jun 14 '10 at 18:11
    
Also confirmed with RDC version 2.0.0 –  Greg Jun 15 '10 at 19:11
    
Must be something about my system, or that it's not caching bitmaps. –  Wavy Crab Jun 16 '10 at 1:41

For Remote Desktop Client 2.1.1 on OS X Mavericks, the bitmap cache file for 24-bit color depth is:

~/Library/Caches/remote\ desktop\ connection/bcache24.bmc

Is there supposed to be a space after that last backslash? –  Heptite Dec 29 '13 at 7:38
    
It was supposed to be a slash. Corrected. –  Rockallite Dec 30 '13 at 6:44
